    Necropolis Review (PC/Steam)

    Necropolis is a new third-person roguelike game by Harebrained Schemes. The game has some of the usual elements of roguelike gameplay like procedurally generated levels and perma-death, but throws those elements into a 3D hack-and-slash environment.

    Nathan Fillion!!! I will admit that I have not played a Halo game since Halo 3, and even then I played strictly multiplayer so I was surprised to see Nathan Fillion in the game as a Spartan. Turns out, that’s not the only thing that’s changed in the Halo universe, for better or worse. Halo 5 […]
